 LAist: The Inferiority Complex: Malibu
LAist was fascinated with this week's Premiere of FOX TV's groundbreaking slave-labor, fix-up condo monstrosity "The Complex: Malibu" in which eight couples are given demolished condos to live in, fix up and sell in the most beautiful city in all of Los Angeles -- Malibu!
Each week, of course, the worst contractors (er, Contestants) are fired off the job (er, Evicted) which will eventually whittle the group down to one couple who will, in the sexiest of all reality TV concepts, let them keep the profits after a real estate company sells the complex to the highest bidder.
As for the city of Malibu itself, "The Complex: Malibu" has seen fit to give us sprawling views of surfers, sea-gulls, lush hillsides (see above), the inside of these broken condos and a Sears somewhere obviously not in Malibu.

 John D. Mitchell's Blog: Java's Inferiority Complex?
Is the incessant chatter about Microsoft and it's products by various Java "celebrities" just a sign of an inferiority complex or is it a manifestation of a completely rational fear?
However, there is a strong undertone even in many of the technical discussions of fear of MS and its products dominating the landscape.
At the level of chatter about Java as a platform vs..Net as a platform and higher into the community and business ramifications, the fear/inferiority complex (at the heart of my question) manifests itself as various forms of marketing hype (aka "posturing") and mud-slinging (and lawsuits :-).
